Queso Chicken (Pollo con Queso)

July 18, 2023

Jump To Recipe

One of the most accessible and easy-to-make Mexican-inspired dishes, Pollo con Queso is a simple staple that combines melted cheese, chicken, and salsa in a single pan that's finished off in the oven. For those who don’t eat dairy, it’s typically off the menu unless they skip the “queso” part altogether, but luckily, we have a savory alternative to missing out on your fave cheesy skillet chicken. 

Our version is made with plant-based Primal Kitchen Queso Dip for a chicken dish that has all of the creamy texture and lip-smacking-good flavor of the original, sans the dairy ingredients. You’ll need an oven-safe skillet for this recipe, so now’s the time to break out your cast iron pan or invest in a good Dutch oven that can withstand high heat. Since Queso Chicken typically includes flavored rice, serve our version over cauliflower rice for a similar but gluten-free take on the classic. This recipe also pairs great with grain-free tortillas or plantain chips!
